Fall is here! (Part I)

Happy fall, friends! I know it’s not officially fall until Friday, but the cooler temperatures have me thinking autumnal thoughts 🙂
Thanks for your patience in between posts- fall is a busy time for photos!
I’ve got a few fun photos from camping earlier this month- when we were enjoying the last weekend of summer 🙂

We even make salads when camping!

That trip was all about spending some quality time together with our pups, and it was wonderful.
Last Thursday, I had my monthly TU board meeting, followed by a quick trip to O’so for some photos with Joe for Hoopla.

Brian’s phone died on Friday, so we visited our friend, Devon, at the Sprint store…

…and Brian became an iPhone user. Yay! 🙂 We left the Sprint store and headed to New London to prepare for the beautiful Green Bay wedding of Rachel and Alex. Their ceremony was held on the St. Norbert campus at the Old St. Joseph church, and their reception was at Crystal Falls, in New London. Here’s a photo review of that gorgeous wedding!

What a beautiful campus!!

Rachel is Brian’s cousin, so I wanted to include a family photo of the Oberstadt clan, minus a few. What a big family!

Now that’s a kiss! Way to go, Grandma and Grandpa!
Sunday was a great day- we went to church at Appleton Alliance with my mother-in-law, Jean, then we did some thrift shopping. We even made a stop at DSW…

20120917-112456.jpg
…new boots! We let the pups run at Jean’s house, then headed home just in time for the Packer game. 🙂
I started off the week with two great coffee dates- one with the new percussion professor at the University, and we talked about some repertoire. I’m looking forward to spending some quality time with my marimba when wedding season is over. 🙂 I also met with Kim, from Life is Art– I love talking with other young photographers. Kim is an incredible photographer and also a professor of web and digital media design- she’s an intelligent, artistic lady, and it was great to meet up! Thanks, Kim! 🙂
More to come, as soon as I can…

Packer family night, Kim and Mark, and fishing in Viroqua!

I’ve had a great week, filled with lots of photos 🙂
Thursday had a photo shoot with Chef from Christian’s Bistro and Father Fat’s, two popular restaurants in town. He’s featured in one of the Hoopla articles next month.

I even had the tough job of eating the food he cooked during the shoot. 😉 Perks of my job, I think!
Speaking of food, Brian and I found a giant peanut. The giant is on the left, a normal peanut is on the right.

I won Randy’s 52 week CD giveaway last week, so I stopped by Radio Kaos to pick out a new album. Old Crow Medicine Show, ftw.

20120809-113358.jpg
Brian’s car needed some work, so he spent most of his free time working on that, and Misty kept him company, laying in the plant-formerly-known-as-grass. We needed rain.

20120809-113607.jpg
Figs are in season in some of the warmer states, and I was happy to get my hands on some this week.

20120809-120225.jpg
Figs + yogurt + granola + coffee = a very happy Heidi.
We had the opportunity to go to the Packer scrimmage that they call “Family Night.” Appropriately, we went with Brian’s family.

20120809-113903.jpg
I got to try on a Superbowl ring, NBD.

Lambeau is a magical place. We were handing out programs prior to the game, and I met a man on the board of directors (it’s his Super Bowl ring). He let me go up to all the different levels and check out the view- even the brand-new rooftop!

That last one is the view from our actual seats. Our nephews were playing a new game: Hide From Aunt Heidi’s Cameraphone. 🙂

Those two are brothers, and so are these three…

20120809-114439.jpg
After the “game” was over, there were fireworks!

20120809-114522.jpg

20120809-114534.jpg
On the way out, we saw Brian’s cousin, Miles. Seriously- there are Oberstadts everywhere! We’re slowly taking over the world and spreading our influence…. 🙂

20120809-114629.jpg
We headed out ASAP to try and beat the crowds…

20120809-114657.jpg
…so we’d be home to get a good night of sleep before a busy Saturday at Kim and Mark’s wedding.
Men and women certainly start their wedding day differently!

Kim had TWO fabulous pairs of shoes. They were gorgeous.

20120809-114858.jpg
I went to school and danced on the Pom squad with Kim’s daughter, Nicki, so please excuse the shameless photos of her adorable little family. Nicki’s daughters were the flower girls. 🙂

Congratulations, Kim and Mark! Thanks for inviting us to share in your wedding day 🙂

I was so tired after all that fun on Saturday that I had a heck of a time getting up on Sunday to go fishing. My friend, Forrest, took me and his other friend, Dave, down to Viroqua to fish for some trout. I basically spent the whole day with two guides- I’m such a lucky girl! I caught four brown trout, including my biggest one- 12″! Here’s a few photos from my day on the stream.

Thanks for the incredible day, guys. I really appreciated your help! 🙂
Stay tuned for more stories of fishing, running, and a water tour!!
